Maytime walk at Llyn Llech Owain
I had a phonecall from a good friend of mine today, suggesting we meet up for a walk. It was something we had been planning for a while. Life had got in the way over the past 3 years or so and we had a lot of catching up to do.
We went to Llyn Llech Owain Country Park, so she could walk her dogs (a Jack Russell and two rescue Greyhounds). As you can see, the weather was delightful.
A splendid Hotel had been set up for wildlife.
Sulphur Tuft fungi growing in the pine needles.
This is one of the lakes on the site, provided with a viewing hide. It was such a beautiful spot.
You may just be able to see a Canada Goose on the water about 3/4 of the way across the photo (and half way down).
There were lovely views. I couldn't help thinking of Edward Thomas when he wandered here.
Curiously-bent trees like the ribs of an old wooden ship.
Early Purple Orchid.
Hurry up with that water Mum!
